YPS Newsletter June 2017

From Editor’s Desk

It was a very fruitful month of May, where we had lot of programmes for members, and discussions on various topics of photography. Now we have decided to meet on ALL Saturdays. And 2nd and 4th Saturdays are earmarked as YPS Open House meant only for discussion on pictures related to salons and other topics.

From May 2017, we have stopped printing Newsletter. We were sending printed Newsletter to a handful of people who had requested a hard copy. Since we found it difficult to sustain production of two versions of the Newsletter, we decided to suspend printing and produce only digital version of the Newsletter which will be distributed through YPS website and emails. Henceforth you please refer to YPS website for any information about YPS programmes.

We are planning to open a section for members to sell and buy used photography equipment, which will be open only for YPS members. This is under development. Please wait for the announcement.

Also, members, feel free to suggest some programmes, if found it relevant and doable, we will arrange it.

The June month, will have lots of monsoon clouds, which will be very good for travel photography. Plan your destinations and make some dramatic pictures.

With best wishes,

H Satish, President, YPS Bangalore
